Hello, how are you all, I hope you had a good weekend. As I said in my last post we went to Betws-y-Coed on Friday morning, we've drove through the village numerous times but have never stopped before.
It was a very relaxing weekend, we didn't do much apart from taking in the stunning Welsh scenery, I loved that the mountains had a sprinkling of snow.
We headed to the coast on Saturday, this is Criccieth, we just parked up and watched the waves crashing against the sea wall. I don't know about you but there's something so relaxing about the ocean.
I managed to get quite a bit of knitting done over the weekend, I turned the heel on my second Diamond Gansey socks, I'm still enjoying this very simple knit and purl pattern.
The final project that I've been working on is my Aureus cardigan, I've nearly finished the right front. I was hoping to get it finished by the end of March but I'm not sure whether that's going to happen. I've read a couple of chapters of Knitting Yarns, if you love knitting you will love reading about different authors that knit and their different stories of why knitting is important to them, very enjoyable and easy to pick up and down, as they are only short chapters.
I'm so tempted to cast on Mskiknits brand new pattern, Hana Hou that has just been released, I love the slouchy, relaxed fit of this gorgeous cardigan, perfect for all seasons but I'd better finish one of my other projects on the needles first. If you hurry on over here, you can get a discount code for $2 off the normal price, this offer finishes on the 14th February so you need to be quick!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope to catch up with visiting all your blogs, this week. I've been busy making wedding invitations for my friend's son, which I hope to share with you soon.
